I feel like I'm making progress losing weight. I started noticing a few days ago that my body felt less jiggly and more toned. I also noticed the other day that it was easier for me to walk up the three flights of steps to my office. I work on the 4th floor(and one of those floors has an auditorium so it is extra tall) and try to use the stairs to get a few more steps in. Usually by the time I get to the top I'm huffing and puffing, but it hasn't been so bad the past few days. And this evening according to Wii Fit (the closest thing I have to a scale in my house), I came in at 169.6! This is the first time I've been under 170 since our wedding. So this definitely feels like a victory.
To make it even better, this was after I had a couple desserts at a dinner picnic this evening. So it wasn't just an empty stomach. Since I've been using the WiiFit often and weighing myself more, I've been noticing swings in weight. For example I could tell that our dinner out at the Melting Pot made me gain 1.5 pounds! Luckily that was only a temporary upswing and now things are back down and down even farther. So I'm hoping this is not just a downswing but part of the real trend.
It has been hard to wake myself up early to attend these morning exercise classes I started going to before work. But I think they really work for me and it's a way to get some exercise without losing motivation after a long day at work.
